ImageField.Initialize(Boolean, Control) Method

Definition

Initializes the ImageField object.

public:
 override bool Initialize(bool enableSorting, System::Web::UI::Control ^ control);
public override bool Initialize (bool enableSorting, System.Web.UI.Control control);
override this.Initialize : bool * System.Web.UI.Control -> bool

Parameters

enableSorting
Boolean

true if sorting is supported; otherwise, false.

control
Control

The data control that contains the ImageField.

Returns

Always returns true.

Remarks

The Initialize method is called by the data control with which the ImageField object is associated to perform basic object initialization for instances of the field, before the field is ever added to a field collection. Data controls such as DetailsView and GridView call the Initialize method in their CreateChildControls methods before other methods such as CreateRow are called to create specific rows with data.

Call this method when you are writing a custom data-bound control that uses DataControlFieldCell objects to perform basic initialization for an ImageField object. Implement this method if your ImageField-derived type requires any object initialization before it populates DataControlFieldCell objects with data or controls in the InitializeCell method.
